Sandy McNab - 39 Hilldrop Crescent - Crippen murder

I am looking for a copy of the postcard issued by the Scottish comedian Sandy McNab showing him on the steps of his new home 39 Hilldrop Crescent, Holloway, the former home of Dr Crippen.

He also used the image at the head of his personal stationary at this time.

I would also be interested in absolutely any other postcards or ephemera relating to Sandy McNab or indeed to the Crippen case.

Hoping someone can help.

Many thanks for looking

You might as well have this, I've not been able to do anything with it I got it from an old book:
when he was in America Crippen worked for a Dr James Munyon, a quack doctor who made a lot of money from his patent medicine, he bought an island off the Florida coast on which he built a quack cure hotel which burnt down, Munyon's Island is now a nature reserve
In the UK Crippen associated with Dr Talbot Bridgewater another quack doctor, criminal, abortionist, forger originally from Australia he had consulting rooms at 57 or 59 Oxford St/Soho St, Crippen may have used these
